Premature English learners are prone to aphasia
In order to enable them to learn English well in the future, as parents, they want to give their children the best education, especially for the information age, there is a wave of English learning in the society. No matter where they goWith children learning English.
The sooner the better, is this really the case?
Questions raised by parenting experts have suggested that prematurely learning English for young children may even have little effect, but rather “produce it”.
A 6-year-old girl can speak three foreign languages. Zhang Qing is an English teacher at a company’s foreign language training organization, and her husband is an English and French translator at a foreign bank.
In 2002, Zhang Qing and her husband returned to study next spring to give birth to their daughter Yueyue.
When her daughter started to talk and talk, Zhang Qing began to talk to her daughter in English. All the tapes at home were in English. Even at night, her daughter listened to the English lullaby and fell asleep.
At the age of 3, Yueyue was able to communicate daily in Chinese and English.
Later, her husband taught her daughter French.
At the age of 4, Yueyue can speak English with her mother, French with her father, and Mandarin with her children.
By the age of 6, Yueyue learned Japanese again.
”Little Genius” Suffering From Aphasia Suddenly, according to Yueyue’s teacher, because Yueyue’s speech is often mixed with multiple languages, the students laughed at her.
Zhang Qing recalled that she went to school to pick up Yueyue a month ago, but her daughter cried when she got in the car and said, “My classmates said that I was an alien.
“In the next few days, Yueyue became reluctant to talk to anyone. When she got home, she ran into the bedroom and asked her what had happened. She just cried.
Zhang Qing and her husband had communicated with Yueyue many times, but Yueyue kept silent.
The two helplessly took Yueyue to the psychiatric department of Children’s Hospital for examination.
The doctor told Zhang Qing after examination that Yueyue had “aphasia”.
The reason is that at her young age, the brain has input multiple languages, so that it is difficult for her to use a purely verbal way to express her in the face of this messy language.
The doctor said that fortunately, it was discovered earlier, and it can be recovered by re-psychological treatment.
Premature education of young children can have many distracting effects.
First of all, children’s nature is to play and learn from play.
“For young children, their main activities should be played in addition to eating and sleeping. Those who do not like to play and do not play are worrying!
“Second, the purpose of young children’s learning is unclear.
As a foreign language learner, it is important to have a clear learning purpose.
Young children are still in the period of physical and mental development, and they cannot recognize what is the activity that changes the growth and development.
Conversely, once their interest in learning English is hit, it will affect previous foreign language learning: again, children’s learning is very limited and superficial.
A toddler’s foreign language learning content for a year can be learned in a few days.
Forcing children to learn a foreign language by force is definitely more effective.
Finally, there is no evidence that learning English in early childhood has any effect on the systematic learning of English in middle school.
“Practice has proven that thinking in early childhood can only deepen after being confirmed by their direct experience.
Text learning that is not confirmed by direct experience hinders the development of young children’s thinking ability, or causes them to form a wrong understanding.
